Raised garden pond FAQs

How deep should a raised garden pond be?

If you’re planning on keeping fish, your garden pond needs to be a minimum of four feet deep. Anything shallower risks the pond freezing during winter and killing off the fish. Some ways to avoid that include installing a pump or waterfall.

However, if you’re just keeping aquatic plants and encouraging some biodiversity into your garden, you can get away with a shallower pond.

Should a garden pond be in sun or shade?

To avoid stagnation, your pond should be in a sunny or part-shaded area. To keep the water fresh and clean, you’ll need to fill your pond with oxygenating plants, which need sunshine to survive.

How much does it cost to build a raised garden pond?

The cost of a pond installation varies on design, size and depth. Check out our garden landscaping cost guide for more information. Or contact our pond installation specialists to ask for some quotes. Alternatively, buy a small ready-made pond online.
